New Poll Says Paladino Falling Behind Cuomo In N.Y. Gubernatorial Race

Photo Courtesy - Paladino for the People(NEW YORK) -- Republican Carl Paladino appears to be losing momentum in the New York gubernatorial race, despite his lead among likely voters in New York who are unhappy with state government, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.

The poll reports that New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic candidate for governor, is pulling ahead. The poll reports Paladino is trailing 55-37 percent.

When the university surveyed in September, Cuomo had only a 49-43 percent lead over Paladino.  However, the weeks following those survey results grew tumultuous for Paladino.  Quinnipiac attributes the poll's shift to independents who were turned off by Paladino’s tough talk, including his finger-pointing argument with a New York Post reporter whom he threatened to “take…out.” The poll finds less than a third of likely voters now think Paladino is the right person for the governor's job.
